but that's true for virtually every war. As Napoleon said, 'God tends to be on the side of the bigger battalions'.

The 'Lost Cause' focuses on the myth that the South sacrificed all (or at least a good portion of the population) for a set of shining ideals of which they, and only they, are the guardians.

The reverse being that the North sacrificing more (in numbers) to end slavery (though that was not the original intent) is somehow not such a shining ideal...
